Cultural Camaraderie: Orchestra Miami – Leonard Bernstein Centennial: Trouble in Tahiti

January 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Leonard Bernstein was on his honeymoon in 1951 when he began composing his one-act opera, Trouble in Tahiti, a candid portrait of the troubled marriage of a young suburban couple. Written between his biggest Broadway successes— On the Town in 1944 and Candide and West Side Story in 1956 and 1957, respectively— Trouble in Tahiti draws upon popular songs styles to deliver an uncompromising critique of post-war American materialism. Beneath the couple’s marital discord is a profound longing for love and intimacy. Their spiritual emptiness, in contrast to a veneer of happy consumerism, creates the heart of the drama and is emphasized by sudden stylistic shifts in the music.

Saturday, 4 pm, January 6 at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC Feldenkreis Cultural Center, Aventura     

HOSTED BY:  Jacquie Tuzzolo and Joanne Levite
